Bread & Butter Pickles

Here’s the recipe as promised…

I made these with Sweet Success Cucumbers, fully grown. This is considered to be a slicer cucumber not usually recommended for pickles, but they worked beautifully for this recipe!

I found it on another blog, an old family favourite of theirs, dating back to what they think may be the 1800’s..how cool is that and they are still making them!
